Watching Hubenak play in the Ole Miss game on the road... and what he's done in JC, and is older... have no idea why play Murry at all. Other than a fickle fan base that requires meeting emotional needs. The upside is you have a remarkable turnaround, the downside is you make an even bigger mess if he struggles due to age and inexperience.
I could be dead wrong, but I don't think he'll succeed in college without a year of physical growth and maturity and time to absorb college and the level of the game.
Even Manziel was a redshirt player. So was Cam Newton. So was Vince Young. So is Jerrod Heard. Correct me, but I think so was Winston at FSU.
Here are some size-weight comparisons of notable QBs. Smallest to biggest. Think these are early data for college years. Off 247Sports/CBSSports.
Murray 5' 11" 180 lbs -- turned 18 this past Aug. 7th.
Manziel 6' 0" 195
Heard 6' 2" 195
V. Young 6' 5" 200
Cam Newton 6' 6" 250
I keep thinking Heard looks really small out there. Murray looks smaller, and aggy uniforms make a player look even smaller. Next week aggy hosts Auburn and Muschamp's ego in beating aggy, plus at Baton Rouge against LSU later in November.
